Abstract

This paper presents a modern PC-based real-time simulator using the latest INTEL quad-core processors to simulate a relatively large power system. The performance of the simulator is evaluated by comparing the results of different contingencies in two different simulation environments. A large grid model built using the EMTP-RV software and simulated in real-time using the eMEGAsim platform’s EMTP-RT software tool is described. Comparisons between the off-line and the Real-Time simulations are made using superimposed steady-state and fault condition waveforms.
